“…So I began to visualise the end results I wanted to see in my life and then I stood there staring at the ceiling in silence wondering what to do next.” He said.
“Well after visualising what you want to manifest, what´s next is to follow your heart, you need to take a step towards what you want to get. If you don’t do anything, even taking a little step so your action moves the rest of the Universe, nothing is going to happen.” Was my answer.
“Ok, ok I know all that, I have read it a thousand times, but the thing is that right now, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! I have done everything I know I can do, I have NO idea what the next step is and I need YOU to help me to find out what should I do now. There is nothing more enervating than wishing something and having no idea what to do about it, I cannot keep staring at the ceiling my whole life.” He said desperately.
“Ok, I understand, I have been there many times before. After you have done everything you can and/or you know you can do about it, what is next is to use the biggest force that can help you manifest in your life what you need: Gratitude.”
“I am telling you this from my own experience. I know that waiting for something we need or wish for is something very difficult and sometimes very stressful, but usually, there are many external factors that influence and delay the result we wish for, we need to use that waiting time wisely and, the best way to do that is redirecting that stress and impatience to feel gratitude for those things you already have.”
“Unfortunately we haven’t learnt yet the amazing power of gratitude. And I would dare to say that it creates unexpected miracles, opens doors and to tell you the truth, I am so happy with the results! I am grateful for Gratitude! “ We both laughed.
A friend of mine was unemployed and was having problems to cover her rent, (she was almost three months behind), and so she knew she could be evicted at any time. She tried to get a loan, applied for several jobs with no results. Finally the feared day arrived and she was told to pay the rent or leave her flat. She was devastated with no job, no options and two little children to take care of.
Friday arrived and no options on sight. She just didn’t know what to do.
I remember she was very distressed and in order to keep her mind busy and away from the negative thoughts that were tormenting her she began to focus her attention on the things she still had. She felt gratitude for her two children, she felt gratitude for the roof over their heads, as least in that moment they had a roof, she felt gratitude for a bottle of milk still in the fridge and for the clothes they were using. There weren’t many things there to feel gratitude for, but she felt it in her heart with all intensity. So she began to feel gratitude for everything around her.
An acquaintance call her and ask her if you could give him a hand with some projects he needed to finish by Monday and he could give her some extra money, of course she felt happy for that opportunity and immediately she felt very grateful for that little miracle.
She finished the job by Saturday and that man was so impressed by her work and swiftness that he asked her if she could help him with another project he needed to finish too. She agreed and finally by Monday morning she had finished all the project by herself and of course that man paid her a good amount for working on a weekend.
She was able to pay her rent and buy some food for her children. Of course she got a wonderful job with that person and now she is enjoying a nice vacation in Hawaii.
I know that sounds like a typical positive thinking tale, but I know that woman and I know her story it is true, besides I have tried this method myself in different circumstances and had worked for me.
What about give it a try yourself? I am sure you will be surprised by the results. So next time you find yourself asking: And now what? You’ll already have your answer here.
